The volume is 471.2 units squared.

Step-by-step explanation:

The formula for the volume of a cylinder is [tex]\pi r^{2} h[/tex], where r is the radius and h is the height.

Inputting the values [tex]r=5[/tex] and [tex]h=6[/tex] the formula becomes [tex]\pi 5^{2}6[/tex]. [tex]5^{2}[/tex] is 25. 25 times 6 is 150. Using a calculator to multiply by [tex]\pi[/tex], we get the answer.

That would be 549.5 cubic inches of cat litter (approximately).

Step-by-step explanation: The cylindrical storage container has a height of seven inches and a radius of five inches. To know how much cat litter would fill it requires us to calculate the volume of the container.

The volume of a cylinder is given as,

Volume = Pi x r^2 x h

Where r is the radius, h is the height and Pi shall be taken as 3.14

We can now substitute for the known values as follows;

Volume = 3.14 x 5^2 x 7

Volume = 3.14 x 25 x 7

Volume = 549.5

Rounded to the nearest tenth, the container would be filled with 549.5 cubic inches of cat litter.
